Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Thaw fish, if frozen. Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large skillet cook tomatoes in olive oil over medium heat about 6 minutes or until softened and skins begin to split. Add garlic; cook and stir about 1 minute or until fragrant. Remove from heat and stir in olives, raisins, capers, and oregano. Transfer to a shallow 2-quart baking dish.

  • Season tilapia with salt and pepper and place on top of vegetables. Bake, uncovered, for 20 to 25 minutes or until the fish begins to flake when tested with a fork. Sprinkle with chili powder and snipped cilantro, if desired. Serve with lime wedges.
